So I was riding home from work and I had to be some where so I was doin about 85 and I could see two bikes in the distance. I caught up to one bike and it was a nice V-rod custom. So I pass him and he automaticly switches lanes to try and catch me. He ends up getting blocked by a few cars and gives up. I catch the other guys and he is on a nice Harley to so I pass him, he is in the Fast land I'm in the slow lane. 3 lane HWY. I was doing 85 he was doing about 75 next thing I know he blows by me at 95. Guess he got offended! I stayed with him and we both got off on the exit which is a long sweeping turn. And he couldn't hang so I left him. Bike handles corners like a champ!!!!

Awesome, the bike does handle great, my left footpeg isn't going to last long (right one will last longer due to my abilities, not the bikes)

That's funny, my left one will last longer because of that. The right side on the other end... :)

I'm still learning how to ride this bike. I was used to turning on my sport bike at 30-45 mph. When I first got this one I was dragging every other turn. But i've just about got it down pat now. But it was a big transition. It scares me thinking about lowering it. I would just about have to stop before I could make a turn.

either you have some really sharp curves or your taking them fast. It takes are really sharp curve and high speed for me to even come close to scraping. I've only scraped mine twice now and thats in a sharp hair pin curve near the house going around 30 or so mph.
